Spikes of Love
150x130cm / 59.06x51.18 in, oil and spray paints on canvas, 2022
On this serene background, a bold, orange, spikey cactus takes shape. Its presence is almost “in our face” as the chromatic contrast is so powerful and generates an immediate energetic emotional reaction.
Spikes come out of every branch of the cactus and we can see that it’s riddled with tiny points, symbols of its organic development. Though one will not see an orange cactus in the wild, one can only imagine what a surreal sight that would be.
A cactus fitting any contemporary home – this work will brighten the mood and certainly be a conversation starter.
